a brace of weekend le grappins…

Update 11.10.2015(12.10.2015)billn


2012 Le Grappin, Beaune 1er Les Grèves Blanc
Quite a deep yellow. A round nose but one that’s also a little anonymous. In the mouth, also round, certainly quite tasty, yet, again a little anonymous versus my barrel tasting – lacking drive, energy and character. I suppose this gives me excuse to try another – here are DIAM seals, so it shouldn’t be a cork problem.
Rebuy – No

2012 Le Grappin, Beaune 1er Les Boucherottes
Deeply coloured and already some deposit of tartrate/tannin in the bottle. Unlike the Grèves, here is a full, energetic nose – primary of-course. Likewise in the mouth but here is a wine of depth, weight and some layers of flavour. A finely balanced wine, indeed a fine Beaune!
Rebuy – Yes
